Angular Defining custom behavior for individual routes

The simplest manner of defining custom behavior for individual routes would be fairly easy.

In this example we use it to authenticate a user :

1) routes.js: create a new property (like requireAuth) for any desired route

angular.module('yourApp').config(['$routeProvider', function($routeProvider) {
 .when('/home', {
 templateUrl: 'templates/home.html',
 requireAuth: true
 .when('/login', {
 templateUrl: 'templates/login.html',
 redirectTo: '/home'

2) In a top-tier controller that isn't bound to an element inside the ng-view (to avoid conflict with angular $routeProvider), check if the newUrl has the requireAuth property and act accordingly

angular.module('YourApp').controller('YourController', ['$scope', 'session', '$location',
 function($scope, session, $location) {
 $scope.$on('$routeChangeStart', function(angularEvent, newUrl) {
 if (newUrl.requireAuth && !session.user) {
 // User isn’t authenticated
